Inflatable Colour Run Challenge 2019

 The biggest, loudest and most colourful charity event in Darlington! 

The Inflatable Colour Run Challenge is an un-timed fun run over 10 inflatable obstacles, with 4 paint stations where you will be splattered from head to toe in brightly coloured paint. 

With four simple rules, the day is easy to follow:

  • Start wearing white (please provide your own t-shirt)
  • Take on the challenge of our inflatable obstacles (we will be setting runners off in waves to ensure a smooth start to your run)
  • Finish covered in a rainbow of colour
  • Raise lots of money for St Teresa’s Hospice!
